Additional 1,000 US Troops to Be Sent to Poland
Thursday, 13 June 2019 23:54 WIB | GLOBAL |Global

The United States and Poland have signed a joint declaration affirming closer defense cooperation, which President Donald Trump says makes clear not only their strategic partnership œbut deep common values, shared goals and a very strong and abiding friendship.

Trump on Wednesday, alongside Polish President Andrzej Duda, announced 1,000 more U.S. service members will be sent to Poland.

Still unresolved is whether there will be a permanent placement of up to 2,000 additional American uniformed personnel in the country.

œWe would be moving them from another location, said Trump in the Oval Office, suggesting the troops would be shifted from Germany.

Trump ruled out boosting the overall number of American forces in Europe.

Later, during a joint news conference in the White House Rose Garden, Duda noted there are 4,500 American military personnel in his country on a rotational base, and he said the document signed Wednesday would clear the way for additional units, including special forces, as part of an œenduring presence.

The two leaders avoided announcing a œpermanent shifting of more U.S. troops to Poland “ a move likely to significantly increase tension with Russia.
